Aussie Slang

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, December 16, 2010 2 comments
I love Aussie slang. I think it shows who we are, our culture and gives us individuality. A personal peeve is the way Australian's are giving up our own language for an international American based one. Grrrrr.

So it's probably no surprise my hero is a true blue Aussie bloke. But how far can I go with the inclusion of Aussie idioms? I'd love to be able to include a glossary of terms at the start - but I don't think Harlequin would like that. Instead I'm trying to find that balance between identifying my hero (in part) as an Aussie through his language (he has to explain himself as my heroine is American - so the reader isn't left scratching her head) and not driving everyone bonkers by using a 'foreign' language, lol.

If you want a good site for Aussie slang go here.

I know I use a lot of them as I discovered when I was overseas and realised how often people looked at me blankly when I finished speaking *grin*.

I'm glad to be a ridgy-didge Aussie.

Updating posts...

Hmmmm, having tried a few times now I don't think this will work, butI will try again to update my Twitter account with my blog posts via Twitter Feed.

Not sure what I am doing wrong?!?

Tweeting again...

I'm trying Twitter again.

I did it for a while last year, but just couldn't get into the swing of it. But at the urging of my WIKS pal Suzi Love am giving it another shot. This time I am hoping that my blog and twitter account are linked so my blog posts will also show as tweets.

Guess this will be my test run...

So Slow

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, December 09, 2010 2 comments

Having a bad week with my word count. Got my BICHOK (bum in chair, hands on keyboard), but countless interruptions are stopping the words from flowing. I guess it's that time of year: Christmas is looming, it's the last week of school and for me, my last week of work (my contract finishes today).

I wonder if Santa can bring me a few words?
